Admissions Interviewing: Equality and Diversity Matters

Mon 18 Nov 2019

Description


A review of ways in which equality and diversity issues relate to admissions interviewing. Participants will consider possible responses to a number of case studies in order to explore what ‘good practice’ really means

Please note: this course addresses equality and diversity considerations and is not a substitute for participation in the Admissions Selection Workshops. New interviewers are asked to register for one of the Admissions Selection Workshops, for an introduction to Cambridge’s admissions selection process, including discussion of how interviews and admissions decisions relate to the University’s agreement with the Office for Fair Access (OFFA). Note that the Admissions Selection Workshops also include opportunities to practise by interviewing current first-year undergraduates

Target audience
  • New and experienced admissions tutors
  • All who contribute to undergraduate admissions interviewing
